Maine has 44,000 acres of wild blueberries
Sheepscot Valley RSU 12 and its partners were awarded $99,853 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm to School Program to expand local food programs and support connections to students and their communities. Through this grant, school nutrition staff will receive additional support, education, and training to efficiently serve local foods and connect those efforts to agricultural education in the classroom and community. Coordination between the classroom and the cafeteria will promote healthy, local food choices for students to increase student engagement around food choices and to increase meal participation. As part of that grant, we are celebrating May's Harvest of the Month - Blueberries.
